Can We Live Longer but Stay Younger?

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/05/20/can-we-live-longer-but-stay-younger

Aging, like bankruptcy in Hemingway’s description, happens two ways, slowly and then all at once. The slow way is the familiar one: decades pass with little sense of internal change, middle age arrives with only a slight slowing down—a name lost, a lumbar ache, a sprinkling of white hairs and eye wrinkles. The fast way happens as a series of lurches: eyes occlude, hearing dwindles, a hand trembles where it hadn’t, a hip breaks—the usually hale and hearty doctor’s murmur in the yearly checkup, There are some signs here that concern me.

    you are fool and boor, with no knowledge of science
    The method of the so-called "codes" is not a religious or halachic one, it is a mathematical one. The people who publicized it were making the argument that these codes are too statistically improbable for them to have been there by chance. that is not a religious claim, it is scientific claim. So, for example, if you were to say no talmid hacham agrees/disagrees with Fermi's theory, that is not a religious theory. Being a T'H is irrelevant in this case, since it has nothing to do with Halacha per se. Furthermore, some of the websites you have promoted use the same method, ie codes from the T'Nach, to prove Yashke was the Moshiach. You can call me all the names you want, it doesn't alter the fact that you nebach an apikores. If you accept the codes, you accept yashke. p.s. several rabbonim have warned of the dangers of these codes, since they could be a sabbatian type mysticism, in the end giving results whcih are apikorsus.

    Weissmandl finding them doesnt mean you can rely on these codes! Perhasp the things he found without the use of a computer were kosher. But there is no liit to what can dreidled with a computer - statistics of a large number of letters and numbers can give very strange results,a nd is not understood by ignoramuses like you who base their faith on it.
